I've done a bit of academic reviewing (some of proposals, and some of
finished books), and it seems to vary with the publisher quite a bit.
I've been paid anything from a couple of books to about $200Cdn and a
bunch of flowers. I don't actively pursue the opportunity to write
reviews, but I do 2-3 a year when people ask me.
